PARAMUS, N.J – Continuing in their 50th anniversary season, Bergenstages will bring to life the world of fantasy role-playing games in the comedic romp “She Kills Monsters,” by Qui Nguyen, in the Ender Hall Lab Theatre at Bergen Community College’s main campus in Paramus (400 Paramus Road) in February and March.

Directed by Leigh Jonaitis, Ed.D, with fight scenes choreographed by Eireann Ingerson, the play tells the story of average high schooler Agnes Evans dealing with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world where her sister found refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres and 1990s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within.

Performances will take place in the Ender Hall Lab Theatre on Friday, February 23, Saturday, February 24, Thursday, February 29, Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. Matinee performances take place on Saturday, February 24 and Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 seniors (ages 65+) and $5 for all students. For seats, visit or call (201) 447-7428.

Based in Paramus, Bergen Community College (, a public two-year coeducational college, enrolls more than 13,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst.
